School placements are completely operated and managed by the local regional Spanish governments. Placements are available at schools in Spain in the following Autonomous Communities (Spanish Regions): Madrid, The Basque Country, Valencia, The Canary Islands, Extremadura, Cantabria, Murcia, La Rioja, Castilla La Mancha, Galicia, Castilla y León, Andalucía, and The Baleares Islands.

Placements are not currently available in Cataluña (including Barcelona), Aragón, Asturias, Navarra, or Ceuta and Melilla.

It is likely program participants will receive a school assignment in one of their region placement preferences, although it cannot be guaranteed. Nor can placement in specific cities within the region, the size of the city, the number of schools or school type (Preschool, Elementary School, Middle School, High School) be guaranteed.

Although region-specific and city-specific requests are often accommodated, it is not something that can ever be guaranteed.

We encourage everyone to approach the placement process with patience, and an open mind. Spain is a uniquely beautiful country with so much to offer, in regions and cities both large and small.
